According to Crime Stoppers, his hand was in his pocket, but police think he was pretending to have a gun. He demanded money, but the employee refused. AA customer walked in and the clerk told him to call 911. 

The would-be robber then said he was just kidding, Crime Stoppers said, and left the store.

Moline Police Department asks anyone with information to call 309-524-2140 or Crime Stoppers of the Quad Cities at 309-762-9500. Crime Stoppers also accepts tips through the P3 tips app.
